Horse Shoe Layout

Horse Shoe Layout #1



Difficulty: Easy

The Horse Shoe is a classic layout. It is more advanced than the three-domino reading, yet simpler than most other layouts. It is a versatile method that can be used for most queries, though there are other layouts which would go into more depth. Like the simple Past, Present, and Future layout, it contains these dominoes in positions #1, #2, and #7, but also has four other dominoes that help the reader understand how to deal with the future better. The dominoes are to be read as follows:

  1. The Past: Past events affecting the question.
  2. The Present: The current state or approaching influence.
  3. Hidden Influences: Things the reader may not be aware of (or barely be aware of).
  4. Obstacles: This is the challenge: obstacles may be avoided or may have to be dealt with.
  5. External Influences: Attitudes and thoughts regarding people around the reader.
  6. Suggestions: Recommended course of action.
  7. Outcome: The result of following the suggestions.

The Past Card represents past events that are affecting the question.



Now is a time to strengthen your family ties. You may even want to consider having a child. Your family life should take precedence. Works involving spiritual communication with ancestors will be tremendously beneficial.





The Present Card represents the current state or immediately approaching influence.



Bathing in nectar, your happiness shall increase. Friends and wealth will build up substantially. Prospects are good for all things. Your agility will be impressive – quick like a slippery fish. It will be very beneficial should you seek visions in peaceful fire rituals.





Hidden Influences - Things that you may not be aware of, or barely be aware of.



You now have great potential for growth. It is recommended that you take advantage of this time by exploring every avenue available for you to grow, whether spiritually or materially.












Obstacle - This is the challenge.



The eye of transcendental wisdom shall open. The advice of a good friend should be followed, and this will prove very beneficial. Scrying rituals will be fruitful.





External Influences - Attitudes about this situation from people around the querent.



A sign of good fortune, your plans will be fulfilled. There will be good news. However, other people's promises will bear no results. Trust your own feelings, thoughts and drives over those of the people around you. Only you are responsible for deciding the proper path for you, and right now advice from others may not be compatible with your plans.





Suggestion - The recommended course of action.�



Wealth increases like a river feeding the ocean. This sign is especially good for works involving water, however marriage or rituals involving fire are not favoured.





The Outcome - What will happen if the suggestion is followed.



There will be no results, as a dried-up tree produces no fruit. This sign indicates that your reach may have exceeded your grasp. The constantly afflicted mind cannot achieve its desires, and therefore continues to suffer. Too many, or too lofty wishes will not be fulfilled. This sign also suggests performing rituals to ancestors and earth spirits to rectify disturbances.
